On March 4, 2014,  the “Gulf Coast Carnival Association traces its roots back to 1908 as Biloxi’s first Mardi Gras parade, which included 17 floats, 150 flambeau carriers, the new 12-piece Herald Newspaper Band, a grand marshal, the mayor and the councilmen. Today the Carnival Association continues the tradition begun over 104 years ago, with King D’Iberville and Queen Ixolib reigning over the largest Mardi Gras parade on the MS Gulf Coast with over 100 units.”
